"I love working in this community full of great kids and families and so many avid readers," said Barbara. "My favorite genre is fantasy and I'm currently reading The Last Cuentista. I love library programming and sharing books with children."

Barbara said the South Street library is offering outdoor Preschool Story Times for children (ages 2-4) on Wednesdays at 10:30 am and Kids Club (ages 4 and up) on Wednesdays at 4 pm. If the weather is bad it'll be held on Zoom and Facebook.

"We offer fun craft-to-go kits a few times a month. Upcoming themes include Winter Birds, Valentine's Day, and Castle Journals. We are also currently decorating our front windows with snowflakes and more. We'll be offering a kit that will allow you to decorate with us!" said Barbara.
